Taylor has always had a strong passion for animals and imagined becoming a vet from a young age. She was thrilled when the opportunity for a School Based Traineeship was available in 2012 and pursued a Certificate II in Companion Animal Studies, the beginning of her career! She completed her traineeship at the Greencross Vets Camira clinic and after finishing school in 2012 started working at Greencross Woolloongabba before finally joining the Forest Lake Village team. Her two dogs Snoopy a Maltese x toy poodle and Hugo a great Dane X GSP X Ridgeback, have been a great influence in her dreams to work with animals. She also teaches Puppy Preschool at both her clinic and the nearby Petbarn in Springfield Central. She is also currently studying a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, which she thoroughly enjoys!

Rachel completed her Certificate II in Veterinary Nursing through a School-based traineeship at Greencross Vet Jindalee in 2015. She now works as a full-time Veterinary Nurse at Greencross Vet Forest Lake Village. “My life for as long as I can remember has been all about animals”. When I was in primary school, I use to pretend to be a Vet and practice on stuffed animals. I have a Ginger Cat named Tiger and a Pomeranian X Shih Tzu named Bella, who are my whole world and I love to bits. When I’m not work, I’m looking for ways to better myself and further my career. I have also recently started Puppy Preschool Classes in clinic.
